Wellcome Collection


We are surrounded by buildings all the time, but how can they affect our physical and mental health? This exhibition examines some of the ways in which architects, planners and designers influence our health, self-esteem and ideas about society. It features works by Andreas GurskyRachel Whiteread and Martha Rosler, as well as buildings designed by Goldfinger, Lubetkin and Aalto, and also considers connections between our homes and our health. Other topics include the therapeutic role of colour and a pioneering emergency mobile clinic.

We have arranged for a free guided highlights tour, before and after which we can explore at our leisure.
